"God Doesn't Answer"
I might postulate that God has answered and that TheeGameDude is guilty of something most of us at times practice. Putting God in a box or having a very specific expectation of how it is God should or would reveal Himself when we ask Him to. For years I longed for a Saul to Paul, roadside experience. That is the kind of visit you just cannot argue with. Instead He spoke to me through my friends, family, billboards on the side of the road, pastors, and even in my own thoughts during prayer. I wasn't fully giving Him credit for these instances because I was too busy looking for the experience I had made up in my head.
There's an old joke about a man that faithfully decides to wait out a flood, that boldly claims every time someone offers him rescue that he will not go with them, that God will save him. In the course of several hours two boats offer help as does a helicopter near the end as the flood waters are at neck level. Upon drowning and entering into heaven the man inquires, "God what gives? I faithfully waited on you and boldly proclaimed to everyone that you would save me and you didn't."
God answered, "I sent you two boats and a helicopter, what more did you want?"
